The whole reason we don't use them is injury potential. PK puts players in a vulnerable position. Given our injury luck the last few years it's not surprising. I would say they should be used in key PK situations in the playoffs, not as regulars. Get them familiar with the system and their role and when we need to keep the other team honest / score SH to get back in a game that means a lot, use them. Otherwise not. The fact is they're not going to be adept at blocking shots and all they have to do is take one in the hand and they're out for 6 weeks. Doesn't need to be a concussion thing or a knee thing. Lots of ways to get hurt playing the PK.

Not worth it with those two.
